*Future construction based on availability of funds.

Commemorative opportunities are available throughout the campus (i.e. general classrooms and laboratories). Donors will be recognized appropriately with a plaque.

According to the University’s Naming Policy, all permanently named buildings and grounds must be approved by the University president and Board of Governors, and all other physical assets and non-physical assets must be approved by the University president and vice president for university advancement, as appropriate.

Payment schedules for naming pledges will be negotiated on a case-by-case basis; however, at least fifty (50) percent of the donor’s pledge must be received before a naming request is presented to the Board of Governors for final approval.
